1st Source Bank has contributed $10,000 to Marquette Catholic High School in support of their Business Technology Trading Lab. 1st Source Regional President Matt Vessely recently presented the funds to Principal Jim White. They were joined by Business Instructor Beth Golding, parents Mike and Tricia Sakich and Allyson Headd, Administrative Intern.
"1st Source Bank commends Marquette Catholic for thinking outside of the box and developing this one-of-a-kind trading lab and unique business programming for its students," said Vessely. "1st Source is pleased to be a part of this exciting program as it provides students hand-on opportunities to learn valuable business skills."
Marquette Catholic's Business Technology Trading Lab opened to students this fall. The Laboratory is used for classes ranging from Economics, Accounting, Personal Finance, Global Finance, Investment Banking and Business Law. Students are provided real life, hands-on experiences to better prepare them for the future.
Mr. White states, "The Global Trading & Financial Literacy Lab was in response to a large percentage of students who would like to pursue business as an interest beyond high school. The simulation lab offers students a hand-on approach to learning the global world of finance."
